Regarding Savage... he is O'Brien's only QB pick out of the draft - 4th round. All of the other QBs have been patchwork. Savage seems to have the largest potential for gain. All of the other QBs are known commodities.

I am sure the receivers were ecstatic last Sunday actually having footballs delivered on time and accurate. I don't know how they would take going back to Osweiler.

Here's the answer... actually this pretty much hits everything...

Bill O'Brien could have lost Texans locker room had he stuck with Brock Osweiler

Texans coach Bill O'Brien faced a significant locker room backlash had he not named Tom Savage his starting QB after Sunday's performance, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. Texans players had gone from being lukewarm about the continued struggles of former starter Brock Osweiler to, in the case of some, privately championing Savage with their playoff hopes on the line.

The coaching staff has been high on him for years, and he has a better knowledge of the offense and a bigger arm than Osweiler. Osweiler was pursued heavily by ownership with the coaching staff having a minimal role, sources said,
